Habitat for Humanity of Fremont County officially became affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International on January 1, 2000.
We have constructed 10 homes for 10 families in 15 years. Habitat of Colorado Affiliates (state-wide) have built 1,000 homes with the goal to build an additional 1,000 homes in the next 3 years.
We have partnered with local contractors and suppliers, as well as the Cañon City High School carpentry students for the construction of the homes. This teaches students how to build skills, while helping their community. These partnerships have generated additional interest from citizens of Fremont County and marked a renewed interest from many people throughout the community.
The organization has a dedicated working board of directors that oversees the planning and implementation of housing construction, the expansion of the ReStore™, and the volunteers.
Staffing: Executive Director, experienced retail Store Manager and retail assistants.
